Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index New York Log In Subscribe Log In Today’s Paper Supported by Peter Ciaccia prepared for his last marathon as its race director, using a prerace course inspection as a vehicle to reminisce. ByKevin Armstrong Nov. 2, 2018 From his perch, riding through Brooklyn on a black bicycle, Peter Ciaccia noticed things that only someone with his experience and, more to the point, his responsibilities, would notice. A dumpster needed to be moved from 94th Street in Bay Ridge. Dedicated “no parking” signs were not up yet, and he wondered when they would. It was two weeks before Sunday’s New York City Marathon, and Mr. Ciaccia’s last as the race director. It was time for the annual spot check of the 26.2-mile course. Dressed in layered clothing to combat high winds and temperatures in the low 40s, he advanced in a 10-person peloton composed of New York Road Runners staff … [Read more...] about Last Time Around: New York City Marathon Chief Takes Measure of a Long Journey
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is a complete poser who’s failed to deliver for New York, so The Post heartily endorses whip-smart GOP moderate Chele Farley for US Senate. As Farley notes, New York needs senators who are both willing and able to fight for it. Not pols looking to move up in Democratic circles — Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Gillibrand — or hamstrung by a fixation on resisting President Trump. All three of those Dems have grossly twisted their political profiles for greater national appeal, often at the expense of New York (and the nation). And Gillibrand has been the worst of the lot. The daughter of a top political fixer, she was a lawyer for Big Tobacco before entering politics. To win a conservative House district Upstate, she presented herself as a backer of gun rights and a friend to Wall Street. Yet the minute she took Clinton’s Senate seat in 2009, she darted feverishly left. GovTrack, an independent legislative monitor, ranked her the … [Read more...] about GOP moderate Farley is better for New York than ‘poser’ Gillibrand
New York City is a place where attitude and strong opinions are in the DNA. New Yorkers might not agree on much, but there is one thing on which millions of them do agree: the subway is a mess. Trains are packed, breakdowns and delays are routine, some say it's gone off the rails. After an actual derailment last year injured more than 40 people, the governor declared a state of emergency. When it first opened more than a century ago, the New York City subway was considered a feat of American engineering, now it's another example of the country's ailing infrastructure. Luckily, there's a man with a plan, an Englishman in New York who proposes the city's largest infrastructure expenditure since the 1950s. More on that in a moment. First, if you have never ridden the sprawling New York City subway, welcome aboard. When the trains are moving, there's no better way to get around New York City, than on the subway. These 400-ton behemoths crisscross the underbelly of the city, zipping … [Read more...] about Why has the New York City subway gone off the rails?

Yet his growing unpopularity elsewhere may not only fuel a Democratic resurgence in November — it may be the very thing that propels more New Yorkers into power. If the Democrats retake the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, New York would play a larger role in Washington than it has in a generation. Representative Jerrold L. Nadler would head the powerful House Judiciary Committee, charged with investigations into Mr. Trump’s administration. Representative Eliot L. Engel would become chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, and Representative Nita M. Lowey would take the helm of the House Appropriations Committee — … [Read more...] about Will Trump Make New York Democrats the New Lords of Capitol Hill?
